Well designed museum in Kota. The exhibits have information in English & Bahasa and there's a good post-Independence history of the Indonesian economy one can learn going through the museum. Great collection of banknotes from around the world and a cool building as well

I enjoyed it. It's quiet cheap and it gives a good picture of Helps Indonesia's history. Including recent history. You understand the difficulties Indonesia face for decades with Rupiah devaluation. I found it objective.

Worth a visit if you have time. Managed to get in 20mins before they closed and saw everything (quickly). Very interesting to learn some of Indonesia's rich history.

My friend the owner of the packer lodge Pak Ardy brought me here together with another Portugal friend. This museum is one of the best i have visited throughout Asia. Unfortunately we are bit rushing on that particular day as the museum closed at 3.30pm instead of 4pm. The entrance fees is cheap as well. This place is a good... More

A beautiful building well maintained that houses an excellent exhibition about the history of money in the Dutch East Indies as well as modern Indonesia. The exhibit is chronological and easy to follow, information was in English as well as Bahasa, guides were available for questions, and the building itself is beautiful. I enjoyed it.

(+) You can learn a lot on the history of money and trade and how it comes to inflation. (-) Not all texts are available in English. The museum is not suitable for wheelchairs. I didnot see any toilets.

Bank Indonesia's history goes back to the days of the Dutch East India Company (VOC), which had a monopoly on the spice trade; more valuable than a gold mine. The Museum Bank Indonesia is a cut above most Indonesian museums. The displays are well presented and you... More

i found this musem to be well presented, the way its been renovated means you dont get to see much of the old building and its just narrative throughout the exhibit. i found this was somewhat boring. a little interaction for children but otherwise the young would not be stimulated by this museum. nice building to view from the outside....
